BBC: What is your normal song or part writing process? Will writing three songs in a single day drastically differ from your usual approach to creating music?
JR: The writing process varies.Every song is different.Some fly out start to finish. Some you add bits to as the years go by and suddenly, like 5 yrs later the song is done. Co-writing with other folks can be a lot of fun and it seems like a speedy process is part of the fun. Writing 3 songs will be easy once a group dynamic settles in.

JR: Aerosmith.
